The Police Station with the hole in it at Ramsgate Harbour

Clicking on this picture to expand it doesn’t help as much as I would like, I think the printing technique of the original owed much to the potato, but as you see it’s a bit of an unusual one. It says Harbour Police Station on the back.

This is part of the group of buildings that used to be on Pier Yard car park, this is a better quality photo.   

Here is a bit of the map, easier to come into the bookshop and look at the paper map

This one is too late as the buildings have changed
After 1914 because of the postmark
This is postmarked 1905 and very conclusive

This one shows something of a gap in the area of The Queen's Head 

For anyone not following this, have alook at yesterday’s post http://thanetonline.blogspot.co.uk/2017/10/looking-out-of-upstairs-window-of.html    

I have the bit between my teeth as they say.

Comments, since I started writing this blog in 2007 the way the internet works has changed a lot, comments and dialogue here were once viable in an open and anonymous sense. Now if you comment here I will only allow the comment if it seems to make sense and be related to what the post is about. I link the majority of my posts to the main local Facebook groups and to my Facebook account, “Michael Child” I guess the main Ramsgate Facebook group is We Love Ramsgate. For the most part the comments and dialogue related to the posts here goes on there. As for the rest of it, well this blog handles images better than Facebook, which is why I don’t post directly to my Facebook account, although if I take a lot of photos I am so lazy that I paste them directly from my camera card to my bookshop website and put a link on this blog.
